MPs give their reasons

Two MPs that have signed the motion in support of Jerusalem have been kind enough to get back to me:

I agree with your reasons for our need for an English anthem (though, as a republican, I dislike God save the Queen). Jerusalem has words that inspire the wish to work for a better country, together with a rousing tune – and I enjoy singing it!

LYNNE JONES MP

It is a great song which has a link with the Labour movement and was sung at Labour Party Conferences in the past.

Mike Gapes MP

Hopefully the others are replying by snail mail.

It's very calm over here, why not leave a comment?

National identity is an important thing and the English have constantly been made to feel like a minority in their own country. The readoption of the flag of st George has been a positive thing for english identity and the next step is for England to have its own anthem, just like Wales and Scotland.
